Got to be nonsense, surely?
I really don't want it to.
I'm going to dismiss it
Maybe Marr joining Morrissey's band for a tour or something, but I don't believe the four of them will play together again.
musically, and possibly even legally.
the other two are great lads, but they could've been anyone.
His playing may have not been the most complex but it was perfect for complimenting the twangy guitar of The Smiths.
I hate it when people say this - The Smiths weren't two of Lenny Kravitz's fucking touring session musicians.
What about Colin Greenwood? He's magnificent, perfect for Radiohead's sound that I don't think many other bassists could do. Same with Ringo Starr - he wasn't amazing, but he was perfect fo the mix.
Just like any other competent musician would.
Why I love Kim Deal
Show off guitarists can get to fuck as well. It's not 1976 anymore.
Way more than competent, but who actually wrote them if it was marr I guess he deserves the credit. It's also annoying that drummers never get credit as if they are interchangeable when they are really key
That's a good bassline
Would put money on Marr writing them though as you say
reading this thread http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/music/4208231
seems to be some saying it wasn't all marr. I know marr is always down as writing all the music, but I can imagine in typical guitarist fashion that once he'd written his parts he considered that the song and the bass and drums minor embellishments on his work. I dont know though he could have written them I just think rourke was clearly a good bassist to be able to play those parts (they are not the simple accompaniment some are making out in these threads) surely he would want input in what he played, alot of time in bands guitarists just want bass players to follow their chords root notes on bass and bassist try and expand on that, the smiths sounds like the later going on to me
So wrong even CG this'd it.
are made by the bass lines.
tempted to start a best smiths basslines thread
course, i'd still go (or at least try to get tickets, though ToutItMaster and the other ballbags would keep them all in house, anyway) but it'd be a fucking car crash.
i wouldn't particularly blame them for taking the money, but it'd be a bit sad after they've said it's not about money for 20 years plus.
won't happen, though, so probably not worth crying about.
Morrissey's band have been getting a bit of stick for their blandity on the official message boards and Johnny Marr seems like a guy really in need of something to do.
I think people always assume it's the money bringing them back (and once it gets over a certain figure, it probably becomes a factor) but with these two, if it was just about the money they could have probably stopped a long while back.
...but I haven't got a stitch to weeeaaaaaaarrrrr...
The Smiths. Not very often DiScussed. I'd say they were one of the oddest 'mainstream' bands there ever was.
If Marr worked with The The again, im still pissed off i couldnt see them when they toured mind bomb.
It's not happening, as far as he knows
I was told Morrissey and Marr had signed up, with the other two TBC but seen as non-essential.
tarnish their reputation so much that everyone stops fucking going on about them.
nothing to see here everybody, move along
"Hey Everybody !! Amazing news !....My amp is fixed ! Johnny."
Heh. I'd go watch this, I'd love to see Moz play with a magical guitarist rather than the purely competent bunch he's got now. But even though the Smiths were my gateway drug for indie music, way back in 1987, I have no particular desire for them to reform.
Although of course Squire did this all last year before the Roses re-formed.
who is and has been chasing him through he courts for a decade to get at the money he owes him. Mozza's most recent quote on it was "The Smiths will end in murder". i'm amazed anyone's taken in by the story.
